Jennifer Berg

Jennifer Berg is an American mystery writer who novels take place in and around the Pacific Northwest during the 1950s. She grew up on one of the smaller peninsulas of Puget Sound and studied History and European Studies at the University of Washington.

She loves strong female (and male) leads, colorful characters, a powerful sense of place, and of course, plots that are challenging — but not impossible — to solve.

Jennifer is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the Authors Guild. Her debut book, The Hatbox Murders, was released by Barking Rain Press in March of 2017. It was quickly followed by an impromptu novelette, The Tugboat Murder, but the press closed it doors before publishing The Charlatan Murders and The Blue Pearl Murders.

Jennifer currently lives in San Diego, California where she is working on two new series, both of which are also set in the 1950s.
